    Programmer Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Syntel (Baltimore, MD) in July 2016.

    Interview

    There were the initial phone call screening, online assessment test which are 90 questions about analytical, mathematics, and technical (C, Java, DBMS, OOP). You got 25 mins for each part, which leaves you approx 50 seconds for each question. I think the questions are tough and I didn't most of it before time runs out. Then the skype interview about your experience with the related technologies and more technical questions, and then the background check... I've only gotten this far, still waiting for result on this.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a Syntel recruiter and the same week I was called on SKYPE for a video interview. The SKYPE interview was not too hard.

    Recruiter Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Syntel (Phoenix, AZ) in June 2016.

    Interview

    From the moment he opened the door to the empty call center (with 3 to 4 Recruiters who looked unhappy and anxious while peering over the cubicle) I felt the negative, tense energy in the air. The interview began and the disposition was condescending, rude and seemed as if they were talking down to me, discrediting my qualifications and education. I was asked three questions (that I had to ask him to repeat because there was a horrible language barrier- In several instances, I looked to the 2nd interviewer to clarify the questions asked) that had nothing to do with the position in which I was applying for. The 2nd interviewer stared blankly across the table at me and when it came time to speak, it seemed as if there was a negative attitude. I was more relieved when the interview was over.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Syntel (Phoenix, AZ) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online. Took them a few weeks to get back to me. Finally they called for a screening and then sent me online assessments to do. Afterwards it took a few more weeks before they did a technical interview over skype which took about 30 minutes. Very poor communication process. Seems very shady.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Syntel in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process is straight forward.
    Proper communication timelines. They will ask you for your convenient time atleast 1 week in advance and you are free to choose with.
    On the particular day, a panel of 2 to 3 technical persons made a telephonic interview.
    The tech team was good and very apt in interviewing the candidate.
